Notes:

This soundboard recording was originally made and uploaded here:
http://www.archive.org/details/MarkKaran2009-10-31.Ghosts_of_Electricity_LIVE_at_Ashkenaz_2009-10-31
by Sound Engineer Bo Putnam. I have remastered it for the purpose of balancing vocal levels, which were often uncomfortably louder than the instrumental passages in between. It was a slow and painstaking task, by the way! But I'd already tried working extensively with two other audience recordings, and was unable to make either of them sound close to as good as this soundboard. So I hope you find this sounds even more listenable than the other version archived here. Enjoy! I don't know when or if the Ghosts of Electricity will play again, but this was SO good, I'm just trying to get the best version possible in circulation...

This is a hard show to burn to CD. I suggest overburning to 81 minutes if you can, and if so, CD1 has Set 1 tracks 1 - 9, CD2 has the rest of Set 1 and Set 2 through track 15, and CD 3 contains the conclusion of the show. If you want to use 4 discs, have at it! It was a LONG show, the night that daylight savings ended and 2 AM became 1 AM...

Subject: I love the way they do dylans songs
I wish they would do every Dylans song in there song this band is so loose and tight at the same time. I am going to be listening and sharing this many many times thanks for posting and remastering it sounds great did i say it before I cant say it enough. Love the people in the band, too, a great combination of musicans like the person said before me I wish I lived in the bay area.
